's the law. so vote for question seven. so we can stop spending all that money here, and keep maryland money in classrooms like mine. . >>> new this morning, clean-up is now under way in new york after this massive fire in queens yesterday. that fire destroyed at least 80 homes in the breezy point section. city's rockwith a peninsula. sandy certainly did not make it easier for the 200 firefighters called to the scene. crews out for chest-high water and had to use boats to rescue 20 people trapped inside. it looks like a war zone there. >>> with less than a week until election day, governor mitt romney returns to the campaign trail with stops in florida today. >> yesterday, he campaigned in ohio and collected relief supplies no hurricane victims. he picked up the endorsement of former chrysler ceo lee iaccoca. >>> president obama said the storm is not over as he toured the northwest yesterday. he is going to get a look at the damage with nog governor chris christie. >>> our maryland senate debate that was originally scheduled for 9:00 this morning has been canceled. >>> -- with new jersey go

benefit to the state when we do that because of the laws of mining, we will not be able to get anything there. i am surprised you would risk putting 25 million people at risk by potentially contaminating their water. we know this is true. i am concerned you would jeopardize 25 million people and the water here by really aggressively trying to move legislation to allow uranium mining. it is not just me. the arizona republic, the arizona daily star, the sun said your actions were shameless and irresponsible. i think that is something you need to deal with. >> i am concerned that my opponent does not seem to understand arizona geography. we are talking about mining in the arizona strip, not the grand canyon. i am trying to protect the bipartisan agreement called the arizona wilderness act that was negotiated by barry goldwater on one side, the sierra club on one side, the chamber of commerce on the other, that protected the grand canyon and also recognize we would need economic activity in the arizona strip. that is what i am trying to protect. geography. apparently, there is a difference
would have had a restructuring within the bankruptcy law, so the automobile industry would have looked exactly the way it does today. i think it would even have been in better shape and created more jobs. that is an opinion, and nobody is going to be able to dispute or advocate, because we will never know. the effect of the matter is, he government has over a $50 billion investment in general motors in stock today. for the government to ever recover that money, i think the stock price is good to have to go up between $55.60 dollars. that is probably not going to happen in my lifetime or your lifetime. host: we go to the republican line, for the republican party chairman in ohio. caller: i have some facts and figures for the american people. people seem to forget what has happened in our past. obama claims the democrats took control when you were a 22 of 2009. actually, the democrats took control january 3 of 2007. they took control of the congress and the senate. that was the first time since 1995. under bush, unemployment was 4.6% and gdp was 3.5%, and 50 straight months of job growth
freeman a law professor joining us from cleveland. good to see you. >> hi, fredricka. >> and richard herman a new york criminal defense attorney and law professor from miami, good to see you as well. >> hi, fred. >> avery, you first. the parents say this is unconstitutional and its attorney sent a letter to the superintendent saying stop the yoga or we're suing. do they have grounds for this? >> well, they're saying essentially that yoga is a form of, as they're saying it, hindu prose la tizing. these are evangelical hindus. no science about the workout, no science about breathing. they're just saying it's anti-christian. let me tell you something in my opinion it is a constitutionally unhinged argument. there is no basis. you know what, i spent time in federal court getting restraining orders under the first amendment. let them take it into federal court. the federal judge is not going to grant a restraining order. it is not anti-christian, it is not prose la tizing. it is absolutely proper for these 5500 kids to be exposed to this physical workout. >> richard, why now after three y
law that reduces prison sentences. if anything it will be a couple of months under house arrest. >> what else is going on with him? let's go there. >> yes. berlusconi is still involved in a case where he was supposed to have elicited sex with an underage moroccan exotic dancer known as ruby "the heart stealer," so there was that going on. there used to be bunga parties with ruby. that is still going on. but we apparently must not call his political epitaph just yet. some people are saying right now, with the law as it is, he can't run for president for the next three years or prime minister as it is. so he announced that he's not going to run for prime minister in the next elections. but that doesn't mean that he won't in years to come. >> because he says his reaction to all of this is, well, that's well and great, but i want to return to politics? >> exactly. he thsz is politically motivate -- he says that this is politically motivated and he is a victim. it's going to be interesting. isn't it like al capone? in the end it's the taxes that have got him, not the bunga, bunga dan
